Slowpoet – Dawn Chorus lyrics

Plot-lines of whilom skies
Surmise in marble eyes.
A web (distilled
In liquored skills
And naked light)
To ease me through the night.
Why am I still clothed?
A hungry comatose.
Our earth has spun
And races run
And still my dreams of you
Go undisturbed
...and from these maudlin dreams,
The dawn chorus sings;
It's songs of love,
Of what once was -
It's like a drug to me and
I can't get enough

Of dreaming of you -
But I've been known to bite off more than I can chew.
I'm dreaming of you
But I've been known to bite off more than I can chew.

Oh you.
You've dug deep into my memories;
Monopolised the seasons
So you're all I breathe -
I'm on my knees.
Oh you.
My brittle bow
Is tested in this empty flat -
No ghost could find his shelter in this habitat -
How am I to build a home when debts are stacked?
Still I can't get enough

Of dreaming of you -
But I've been known to bite off more than I can chew.
I'm dreaming of you -
But I've been known to bite off more than I can chew.
